Andrew John Teague, founder of D.A.D.s (Dads Against Double Standards) and NAAP, has thanked the consumerwatchfoundation for supporting the world-wide battle to make parental alienation a crime.
In a Facebook video circulated to thousands, he says: “A big massive thank you to the consumerwatchfoundation for their continuing support – they have written so many stories about parental alienation. They have been unbelievable in what they have done for us, our children, parents and families.”
Leigh G Banks, editor at CWF, a news and views service set up more than three years ago to help people facing a crisis in their lives, said: “Thank you to Andrew for his comments. We really are here to help … but as a fellow victim of PA it was a natural progression for the site to become involved in the fight.
“Parental alienation is one of the most disgusting things an angry parent can do. They deliberately turn a child against the other parent and often make them hate …
“The lies that are told are shameful, the coercion, the abuse deliberately employed to hurt the other parent is shameful. It is as bad as domestic abuse except in cases of PA, it is the heart and soul of another human being the aggressor is battering. And as you can read in our pages, this ‘crime’ leads to people killing themselves.
“Suicide rates are frighteningly high. But it’s not only angry parents causing this problem, social workers, CAFCASS and family courts allow themselves to become weapons of the alienators.
“And yet the courts keep telling us how well they are doing, how compassionate they are, how understanding.
“But they ignore the fact that the real victim in parental alienation is the child… yes the child of the alienator is their real victim. These parents are destroying their own child’s security, future and happiness.
“We at the consumerwatchfoundation will continue to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Andrew and the tens of thousands of people across the world who stand up to fight the shame of parental alienation.”
